Editors' Review

PDF OCR X Community Edition for Mac converts PDFs and images into text or searchable PDF documents. It works with both PDFs generated from a document and scanned PDFs. The application's basic interface couldn't be easier to use, and it worked like a charm in our tests; but this version of the app limits you to one-page conversions.

The main interface of PDF OCR X consists of a small, unassuming window where PDF files can be dragged and dropped. Files can also be manually selected from a Finder window via a drop-down menu. Once moved into the program, an additional menu comes up where users can select from a number of input and output settings. These include preferred language, the number of columns, and different text wrapping types. Clicking a well-labeled convert button initiates the process, which completes quickly. The output file is automatically loaded for review and can then be saved or discarded easily. The tested PDF converted to text well, without any transcription errors. The community version of the program only supports one page PDFs, though, which is a frustrating limitation.

PDF OCR X Community Edition for Mac functions well and offers an easy-to-use solution for users looking for an application that can create searchable one-page documents from PDFs or for those who need to quickly extract text from an image.
